I Love Lucy - The Girls Go Into Business
I am having one of those days when I just really need a hug, which means, of course, that somebody else out there is, too. So I’m sending one to you…wherever you are. May the sun shine a bit brighter on your day. :)
4/? films - Amadeus (1984)
"But they showed no corrections of any kind. Not one. He had simply written down music already finished in his head. Page after page of it as if he were just taking dictation. And music, finished as no music is ever finished. Displace one note and there would be diminishment. Displace one phrase and the structure would fall."
LOVE. THIS. MOVIE.

What do you think? Mary/Matthew, Sybil/Tom, Edith/Anthony, Edith/And Anyone, Mary/Blake, Mary/Gillingham, Mary/Napier, Anna/Bates, Hughes/Carson, Thomas/Anyone shippers let’s agree to disagree and show one another respect. (I am SO sorry if I left any ships out…it’s really late here when I am writing this). This has been something I have been thinking about for awhile. I can be a stubborn hot head and have regretted things said or written from that place.
But I have never regretted showing kindness or respect to another person.
This doesn’t mean we all have to agree. It only means that I believe we should respect one another as well as we personally can. It doesn’t mean that we can’t have opinions; it only means that we ask ourselves how to write those opinions in a way that is respectful. Why fan the flames of hate or animosity? While rants may feel good in the moment (I speak for myself here), they really don’t do any good (and at least, I personally tend to regret them). And they don’t change people’s minds either. They just create division and this should be a place of inclusivity instead of exclusivity. To be clear, no one thing (or person) precipitated this…It’s been on my mind for months as I have watched (and sometimes participated in) what is going on here on Tumblr.
As the numbers of my followers grow (I honestly don’t keep track but the other day my eye glanced up and I was shocked), I think this just weighed more heavily on my heart.
I’ve seen the internet used for good–and not just with our best friends. Let’s use Tumblr for good all around. We have a platform here, whether we like it or not LOL. What do you want your platform to be? (Like I said, this is not directed at anyone…I really would like it to be a community initiative and I really would like us to be a community again.)
Please reblog if you agree. Please. Not for my ego but for this community.
Love you lots, LDI
